Abstract:

Zug and Zuoz are municipalities in Switzerland where light artist James Turrell (born 1943 in Los Angeles) created works of art. This publication is devoted to the relationship between two contrasting works: Architecturevs of Light and Skyspaces, which explore the encounter between the architectural interior and the natural world outdoors. The focus here is on a permanent installation, Light Transport, which, at night, immerses the Zug train station in different colors, and the Skyspace Piz Uter in Zuoz--a plain, round structure made of stone, with a circular opening in its roof. These two works are used as examples of how Turrell's art unfolds, depending on whether it is in an urban or a natural space, and to show what sort of conclusions about his concept of art can be drawn from this. This extensive, carefully illustrated volume provides the viewer/reader with an experiential journey between the borders of seeing.--Supplied by publisher.
